By using the centered hole for a shank.
If it works... Both the hole and the shaved outer diameter will be used in my project.

Yeah, that's the idea; the chuck of most power drills is mounted on a (for instance) 3/8"-24tpi threaded shaft. You can build a fitting that goes onto that shaft, that engages the 1" dowel.
It takes a lathe, and some patience, though. Some cheap holesaws use a driven disc with concentric circle grooves, you could fairly easily mount some kind of suitable chuck on such a disk; do you have a small-ish lathe step-jaw chuck handy?

Can you glue it into a 1" socket for a ratchet wrench and use it with 1/4 to 3/8 adapter that would be chucked into the drill.
